This is a fully automated extracting tool. This is not a WinRAR or WinZIP replacement but quite a useful util when you want to extract large quantum of archives. The program makes a queue of every rar added to the list and extract them one by one. This way you can peacefully play your games (or sleep) while extracting. It also have optional functions to cleanup (removing archives after extract). You should try it, it is free and you’ll get a notice when a program update is available, that way you’ll always have the latest version. Other functions like minimize to tray, thread priority etc. are also available.

  1. How to save the error log ? if the files are zip and rars and one of them are corrupted so while the unpacking we should only see the errors log in some log file and it should be shown in the program with a bility to copy it as a clip copy

    please add it to the next version , if you extracting 14000 plus folder you dont want to keep searching for which is done extract good but only which ones didnt extract so we can also need right click options to open the folders

    and also mark the folders with the red color that the one didnt get unpacked well for some rars zips reasons

    the program work perfect its just very poor and not updated for very long time.

    hope you can reply and do something about it , 100 $ donation is nothing for some coders who are working to make it easy for others.

    thank you.,

  2. Oh no..
    MIrror anyone? Lost this app in a PC change and both download urls are 404.

  3. hi Lars,
    can you maybe do an overhaul and make it compatible with Win10?
    also, a couple of clearly intact winrar 5.* archives are missed during the detection
    can donate you 15eurs, maybe others will too, when it is fully working. as long as theres the scene, this tool is a true gem.

  4. This is one of the best things to ever hit the waves. If you are trying to properly un-do what those ingenious torrent packers do–without frustration, this bad-ware will do it.

  5. Doesn’t open a window since last week. New installation doesn’t help. Anyone with the same problem?

    • Hi grisu,

      There is probably something wrong with the window placement stored in registry.
      Use the registry editor and go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\
      Delete the “folders”:
      www. Autounpacker
      www. Unpacker

      This will loose your config setup.
      If you like to keep your setup and just restore window position, delete the “folders” under the www. Unpacker

      Regards. Lars

  6. Ingenious and unique software for fully extracting archives including all archives within! Please never stop developing it. Though it took me a long time to find UnPacker. And nowadays I am mostly using OS X. Any OS X port in the making?

  7. where can i find a good manual for this program, my installation keeps deleting all my files, rars and extracted 🙁

    • Oh, SHOOG, You must have gotten the “UNPAC-A-DELETER.” You, see, these platforms unpack every single file on you PC. And, sometimes they even add other peoples files. But, they are good if you hate your computer.
